#Immersive Media (AR, VR, 360°)

Augmented and Virtual Reality as well as 360° videos enable new forms of immersion in the virtual world – for example for use in the world of art and media, in Industry 4.0, and in digital healthcare.



Investigates how characteristics of stop-motion animation and motion-capturing can be conflated with virtual reality in order to enrich the current art discourse.


The research project “Dataskop” develops mobile data visualisation methods integrated into real-life surroundings to combine data displayed in the physical environment and abstract data representa...
